    Escape is the system that houses all of our HR/Payroll & Finances.  You will now have access to look at your personal information in ESCAPE and verify that the information we have is in fact the correct information.

    The web address you need to go to is:

    2. Enter your oldadobe.orgemail and fill out the rest.  
    3. Password must be a minimum of 12 characters (numbers & special Characters are not needed but recommended)
    4. Once completed, you will receive a box that requires a number.  
    5. You will receive an email stating the code to enter.

    Congratulations!!  You should be in.

    Once you are officially in the system you can look at all of your information. In the upper left-hand corner there is a box that reads My Activities. 

    • Click on this drop-down box. Click on My Info On the top of the screen, Section 1-3 shows all of your personal information regarding your home address, phone number, DOH, etc. The bottom section is your Assignments (up to date), Credentials, and Education. (Sonya Wasdenis working on this)

    This will help alleviate a lot of the questions you have about your employment with the Old Adobe Union School District.  You will be able to get information immediately instead of waiting for an email or a call back from HR/Payroll. We will direct you to the Employee Portal when any of these questions come up.  Please log on as soon as possible and play around there. 

    Please remember that any changes that are made are not valid until Sonya approves them.
